About the Fund
When students choose to attend Georgia State University, we begin building bonds not only with those students but with their families as well. For that reason, we offer those parents their own opportunities to experience the university through special events, programs and publications. It’s a way for parents to witness firsthand the positive effect Georgia State can have on a student’s life. Supporting the Parents Association helps us expand those opportunities and build stronger bonds between the university and our students’ families — and within those families themselves.
Parents Association Scholarship: Each spring semester, six students whose parents are members of the Parents Association currently receive $1,000 scholarships. Increased membership will help us grow this scholarship fund so we can award more scholarships every year.
Family Weekend: Through campus tours, educational sessions and, of course, one of the biggest football tailgates of the season, Family Weekend brings Georgia State families together and shows them what it’s like to be a Panther.
Finals gift bags: Final exams are among the most pressure-packed periods for students. We can’t make the test questions any easier, but Parents Association “care packages” can make Finals Week a little less stressful.
